NELA Welcomes Me Home

This month marks what would be my sixth year living in the same apartment building in Koreatown–would.  As I mentioned previously, I moved to Northeast Los Angeles a few weeks ago.  It was a spontaneous move, but it was the right one. I lived in a 1930’s block apartment off of 3rd and Normandie.  It […]

Finding a Way Home After the Phone Battery Dies

Jonah suggested his favorite Oxacan restaurant, Gualagetza, for margaritas and shrimp cocktail. Gualagetza is a unique treasure of a restaurant. […]

Today I had a very unusual day–I didn’t leave my apartment at all. I did some serious spring cleaning.  I did some serious Netflix watching too.  I just got into House of Cards.  I think I want to be Claire Underwood. The biggest adventure of the day is the delicious Mediterranean restaurant that delivers in […]
